Blagojevich: 2008 a good year for bloggers

Gov scoffs at probes, media: 'They like to sell newspapers',

In a Dec. 21 government filing in the case of indicted ex-Blagojevich fund-raiser Tony Rezko, "Public Official A" is alleged to have told Stuart Levine -- an indicted former member of two state panels who is pleading guilty to corruption charges -- "You stick with us, and you will do very well for yourself."
Stick your blog like a cheap suit to Blagojevich, Rezko, Levine, and Kelly and it seems your sitemeter will do well too.

Some National Democrat is going to ask the Gov to go (Durbin maybe?), because this story will spread and fester all over the country.

Update: Associated Press - January 4, 2008,
Political fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko has pleaded not guilty to six wire and mail fraud counts returned against him in an expanded indictment in federal court.

Ali Ata and Abdelhamid Chaib are also charged in the scheme. They pleaded not guilty on Thursday.

U.S. District Judge James Zagel says there'll be a hearing next month, but it could be delayed while Rezko is tried in another case.

Rezko's attorney Joseph Duffy expects the trial to last over three months.
It's gonna be a long three months.

Rezko can hurt Obama more as this goes on.

Blagojevich will be in jail the same time George Ryan is getting out.
It is a national disgrace to have two governors in a row go to jail.

There will be a governor Pat Quinn by next year.

I wonder why a national Democrat hadn't attempted to ask the governor to get out the way? What took them so long? And even if they did, what makes them think he'll just give it up?

The man is so narcissistic and dishonest that he doesn't recognize the problem. He will never give up until he is frog-marched out of his home. I'd say his office but he apparently doesn't have one anymore. The fact that he is hiding out at home makes him look even more guilty. And if he was a real man, he would turn himself in and save his children the embarrassment of having both parents under the federal gun. I guess Patty goes under the bus to keep him afloat. I wonder how this man got through law school. Law appears to be a troublesome problem for him.

Unless there are new revelations about Rezko, it will have no impact on Obama.

Reporters have looked at the story from every direction and decided that Obama may have done something unwise, but not illegal. Obama has already admitted it was unwise so there's no story.

Republicans could spend millions of dollars trying to make it into something its not, but good luck explaining this one in a 30 second t.v. ad. Or getting voters to care.
